Four Republicans whose candidacies were said to have been willed by God have lost to Romney

Let’s review the record:

Herman Cain said that when he was fighting cancer a few years back, God told him that his death was not yet near: “‘Not yet Herman,’ God said. ‘Not yet. I’ve got something else for you to do.’ And it might be to become the president of the United States of America.”

Rick Santorum’s wife, Karen, once said this about her husband’s presidential candidacy: “It really boils down to God’s will. What is it that God wants? … We have prayed a lot about this decision, and we believe with all our hearts that this is what God wants.”

Michele Bachmann said before entering the race that her decision to run would be entirely up to God: “If I I felt that’s what the Lord was calling me to do, I would do it. When I have sensed that the Lord is calling me to do something, I’ve said yes to it. But I will not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it. That’s really my standard…If I am called to serve in that realm I would serve, but if I am not called, I wouldn’t do it.”

Rick Perry’s wife, Anita, once said God told her first that her husband should run for president, “but he [Rick] didn’t want to hear it.” Eventually, however, Rick saw the light.

Of course, the presidential candidacies of all four of these people have ended in defeat, while Mitt Romney appears to have the nomination wrapped up. What does that say about Divine Will?

  2. What does it say? It says that people will use science fiction, err, I mean, religion, to justify just about anything they want.
